Hetzel Design and client’s vision for this new town is an axial development that conjoins two lakes to the city river. Drawing upon the tradition and synergy of ying and yang, one lake offers urban, commercial destinations, whilst the other offers parkland, nature trails and low rise residential.

The focal point of the project is the “Ring of Life” a large sculptural hoop at the edge of the lake presenting a gateway to the new town and creating a memorable moment that celebrates harmony between urban development and nature.
